NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has determined that the New England Patriots violated league rules Sunday when they videotaped defensive signals by the New York Jets' coaches, according to league sources.

NFL security officials confiscated a camera and videotape from Patriots video assistant Matt Estrella on the New England sidelines when it was suspected he was recording the Jets' defensive signals. Sources say the visual evidence confirmed the suspicion.

Goodell is considering severe sanctions, including the possibility of docking the Patriots "multiple draft picks" because it is the competitive violation in the wake of a stern warning to all teams since he became commissioner, the sources said. The Patriots have been suspected in previous incidents.

The Patriots will be allowed an opportunity to present their case by Friday, sources said, most likely via the telephone.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said on Tuesday that no official decision has been made and that the club has not been notified.

The league also was reviewing a possible violation into the number of radio frequencies the Patriots were using during Sunday's game, sources said. The team did not have a satisfactory explanation when asked about possible irregularities in its communication setup during the game.

Goodell is expected to have a decision no later than Friday but that is not set in stone.


looks like they may lose some draft picks over it or a fat fine.what gets me as much talent as that team has why resort to that.also i was not aware others teams have complained about the pats doing this the last 4 years but this was the first time the nfl was able to get the video.

So may be we would have only lost by two touchdowns? I just hope the new kid can step up for the injured Chad - looks like it may be a long season. On the other hand Mets 9 wins in last 10 games - O crap I probably just jinxed them.

I hope you did! :P

I'm a Phillies fan...but I don't hate you for being a Mets fan. Strongly dislike is more like it.

Just kidding of course.

Kraft is too important to the league - he runs it along with Polion from Indy

the sanctions will be minimal

my guess - maybe the loss of a 4th or 5th draft pick

Goodell aint gonna bite the hand the feeds him - Kraft is too powerful

(now granted, i could be dead wrong)
